Wait, is that pro golfer Patrick Reed a broken Porsche 911 GT2 RS on Copart?

Update: 27.04.21. 7:39 p.m. ET: This one the article has been updated with additional information from VINwiki which shows that the car does indeed match.

Earlier this week we reported on a badly mangled and very green Porsche 911 GT2 RS that showed up at Copart. Now we’ve stumbled upon some tantalizing information that suggests the crashed GT2 could possibly belong to none other than golf pro Patrick Reed. While we can’t say for sure that this car is his, there is some evidence that it is.

The car in question is a 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS currently listed as residing in Houston, Texas, according to Copart. The car has serious damage to almost every panel, including the roof. In particular, the front bumper is completely damaged on the driver’s side, exposing the wheel, while both sides of the car are badly battered. The rear wing itself is completely missing. Tragically, the incident happened with just 361 miles on the clock. This supercar was destroyed before the end of the break-in period.

The breadcrumb trail leads one to Patrick Reed. It came first Disc attention from a Reddit post claiming the car belonged to a professional golfer. As it turns out, Reed had previously shared photos of a Porsche 911 GT2 RS that bore a striking resemblance to the Copart crasher. According to a Golf week In 2019, Reed had recently received his Porsche 911 GT2 RS, commissioned after winning the Masters in 2018, presumably to match his new jacket. The paint, wheels and decal set point in the direction of the professional golfer. Also, like the photo Reed posted on Instagram four years ago, the Copart wrecked car has yellow calipers, yellow stitching and yellow seat belts.

Additional case support, information sent to VINwiki suggesting that the car actually belongs to Reed. Reports posted on the site listed the car’s specification and original VIN number, which matches what we see on the Copart listing.

As with any speculation, there is always the possibility that we may be off target. It’s entirely possible that the crashed Porsche 911 GT2 doesn’t belong to Patrick Reed, and it’s just a coincidence that his car looks so similar to the one in question. Regardless, the evidence we’ve uncovered so far is compelling, especially given the VIN match. Also, Porsche doesn’t release many GT2 RSs every year, let alone in this spec.

If this is indeed Patrick Reed’s Porsche, it would be a sad end to a beautiful car. The GT2 RS is a highly respected and highly sought-after machine with a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine capable of developing 690 horsepower. With a top speed of 211 mph and a 0-60 time of just 2.6 seconds, it’s a car that demands respect and caution in equal measure. It is no wonder that a moment of over-enthusiasm or a simple mistake could have caused such a disastrous accident.

We can only hope that it has fallen into the hands of someone who can restore it to its former glory. However, given the extent of the damage, it can only be a donor engine. In the meantime, let this serve as a reminder that even the most skilled drivers can get into trouble when dealing with the sheer power of a supercar.

Stay tuned as we continue to investigate the mystery of the crashed Porsche 911 GT2 RS and whether it really belongs to golf star Patrick Reed. Trip has reached out to Reed’s team for comment and will update this article accordingly. In the meantime, check out the pictures and decide for yourself. And as always, remember to drive responsibly and with respect for the cars we love.
